For the second time in a week, the decaying remains of infants were found at a Detroit funeral home, and Michigan investigators are scrambling to find the link between the two seemingly unrelated cases.
As The Detroit Free Press reports, investigators turned up Friday at the city’s Perry Funeral Home, where they found the remains of 63 fetuses. 27 of them were found stored in freezers, while 36 of them were found stored in boxes, in what authorities describe as a “grisly” discovery.
Detroit Police Chief James Craig was at a loss for words.
“I’ve never seen anything (like this) in my 41 and a half years. I’m stunned. My team is stunned. God help those families. It’s disturbing, but we will get to the bottom of this.”
The Tesla automobile had two jobs when it was launched: First, it would finally and formally usher in the era of the electric car. No more false starts. No more wondering who killed the electric car. With the introduction of Tesla Motors, the electric car was here to stay.
The other job was to introduce the self-driving car. While this was never intended to become an immediate reality, it was the official first step toward a near-future where cars would drive themselves. Tesla has succeeded in the first goal. Thanks largely to Elon Musk, electric cars are for real. The second goal, not so much.
According to the Verge, “Tesla stopped promoting the ‘Full Self-Driving’ option for its cars.”
“Tesla has pulled a long-standing promise of a “Full Self-Driving” option for its cars from the order page on the company’s website.
It can be difficult for politicians sometimes to make public appearances. And this is exactly what happened to Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who went to have dinner with his wife at Havana Rumba in Louisville on Friday night.
Instead of having a pleasant gastronomic experience, the Senator was confronted by four angry diners who started berating him for his politics.
According to TMZ, one of the diners, who was identified as the main aggressor by eyewitnesses, tried to force McConnell out of the restaurant.
“Why don’t you get out of here? Why don’t you leave the entire country?”
The woman who filmed the video told TMZ that before shouting at the Senator, the main aggressor “slammed his fists down on McConnell’s table, grabbed his doggie bag and threw the food out the door of the restaurant.” The woman also mentioned that those men complained about the Senator’s position on health care and Social Security.
Saudi Arabia admitted on Friday that Jamal Khashoggi was murdered in the consulate in Turkey, saying the Washington Post journalist was killed in a “fist fight.”
The Turkish government now vows to reveal the truth about how he was killed, the Sun reported.
Khashoggi disappeared after entering the Saudi consulate on October 2 seeking paperwork he needed to marry his girlfriend. Reports from Turkish intelligence indicated that he was murdered by a team of Saudi agents who flew to Turkey specifically to kill him, with the agents dismembering Khashoggi while he was still alive before killing him, all within a span of seven minutes.
Amid growing international pressure, the Saudi government finally admitted involvement and said that a group of 18 people had been arrested, but maintained that Khashoggi was killed in a fight. In a statement on Saturday, Turkish government official Omer Celik told the Anadolu news agency that this was not the case.
Michael Shawn Hunt, the 43-year-old man who was arrested and convicted for stalking Lana Del Rey, has been sentenced to serve one year in prison. Hunt reportedly took a plea deal and will get credit for the 245 days he has already spent in jail.
According to MSN, Hunt was arrested with a knife outside of the Del Rey’s concert in Orlando, Florida. In court, he pleaded no contest to stalking, and the weapons charges and charges of aggravated stalking brought against him were dropped. After the news of his sentencing broke, the singer addressed the matter on her Twitter account.
Del Ray posted a screenshot of an article about Hunt’s sentencing and including a comment.
“Alsoooo…If you bring weapons to the show with plans to use them and ur posting about it — the police will probably know about it before I do like they did in Orlando.”
According to recent reports, the government run website, healthcare.gov, has been hacked. The worse news is that 75,000 records were accessed. TechCrunch provides information on the latest breach.
“A government system used by insurance agents and brokers to help customers sign up for healthcare plans was breached, allowing hackers to siphon off sensitive and personal data on 75,000 people.”
Sadly, this is not even the first time this has happened. CBS News reported the the HealthCare.gov server was hacked back in September, 2014.
“We have taken measures to further strengthen security,” the Department of Health and Human Services said to CBS News at the time.
Even that was not the beginning of the problems. In January of 2014, FreedomHacker reported that the new-at-the-time Healthcare.gov was hacked in four minutes.
Elin Ersson, the Swedish student who was hailed a “hero” for refusing to sit down on a flight in order to prevent the deportation of an Afghan migrant, has been indicted for violating federal aviation laws.
According to the indictment, Ersson “violated the Swedish aviation act by remaining standing when the plane was set to take off,” Fox News reported. She could be fined and sentenced to up to six months in jail if convicted.
The controversy erupted in July, when Elin Ersson grounded a flight bound for Turkey from Gothenburg, Sweden, by refusing to sit down.
Migrant Had Served Jail Time For Beating His Wife
Ersson, who cried in the emotional Facebook livestream video, said she was heartbroken because she didn’t want the Afghan refugee deported back to Afghanistan after his asylum application to Sweden was denied.
South Carolinian Seth Aaron Fleury was sentenced Thursday to 12 years in prison after biting a portion of girlfriend’s lip off. The 23-year old had pleaded guilty to the charges of battery and assault of a highly aggravated type, according to Newsweek.
The violent incident started on October 21 of last year when Seth Aaron Fleury met with his former girlfriend, Kayla Hayes, in Simpsonville, South Carolina. Fleury apparently wanted to talk about their relationship during the meeting, but Kayla Hayes made it clear at that time that she did not want to date Fleury.
Her reaction angered Fleury, and that’s when the South Carolina man attempted to kiss her. However, as Kayla Hayes tried to pull away, he bit down hard on the 19-year-old’s lip, severing a portion of it completely. He then fled the scene after the violent episode, reports the Daily News.
For some, the idea of spotting a monster alligator believed to be anywhere from 14 to 16 feet in length is enough to turn tail and run away in terror. For friends and frequent guests at golf clubs in Florida, giant alligators strolling across a course is not an uncommon sight.
The club’s reptilian visitor, affectionately nicknamed Chubbs, made his first appearance on the Buffalo Creek Course back in 2016. After being caught on camera, the creature became an overnight social media sensation. Random stories and memes have continued to pop up about him ever since.
Being such a large reptile, many were skeptical regarding whether the original video was real. The video attracted so much attention that websites like Snopes and PolitiFact did some investigating to determine whether the monster alligator was real. After fact-checking, both websites determined Chubbs was a very real creature.
The story of a British cyclist accidentally shot to death by a French hunter while trekking through the Alps captured international attention last week, but now the dead man’s sister says there is another side to the story.
Mark Sutton was shot to death in France when a young hunter mistook him for a deer. Afterward, Katie Toghill claims that Mark, her older brother, was actually a rapist who abused her for years when they were children. As The Sun reported, the 32-year-old claims that Sutton frequently beat and raped her in their childhood home.
As the Mirror reported, Sutton was biking in a wooded area near Montriond on October 13 when a hunter saw him in the fading light and mistook him for a fast-moving deer. The bullet struck Sutton, who died at the scene.
The 22-year-old hunter was reportedly devastated and local police were investigating him for manslaughter. The incident led locals to implore officials to close the area to hunters.
During the Carrabelle Hurricane in 1899, 15 ships were documented as being lost on Florida’s Dog Island, and some of these have now been discovered again 119 years later after Hurricane Michael.
As The Weather Channel reported, these ships originally washed ashore in the 19th century after a powerful storm moved from the Florida Keys into the Gulf of Mexico and gained strength, turning into the Category 2 Carrabelle Hurricane. Carrabelle, a beach resort town that is 20 miles away from Apalachicola, lost all but just nine houses and one woman was killed after a house collapsed on her, with six others having lost their lives to the 100 mph winds and $1 million in damage having occurred. The town was said to have been “literally wiped from the map at this time.”
A teacher was dismissed from her position recently after forcibly dragging a special needs student up the stairs and through the hallways of his middle school. According to the teacher the child refused to “get up” off the gym floor and was in the way of other children who wanted to play.
Jo Grayson, a resident of Lexington, Kentucky and the mother of a nonverbal autistic boy named Thatcher, was horrified and enraged when her son returned home from school one day covered in bruising, cuts, and scratches.
According to CNN, Thatcher’s teacher sent his mother a text message that said, “the nurse and I had to physically help him get up off the gym floor. He wouldn’t move and other kids were trying to play. I apologize if he has marks on him.”
Gwinnett County Officer Antwan Toney was killed Saturday when responding to an anonymous 911 call. Police have arrested 19-year-old Isaiah Pretlow and charged him with aggravated assault, but 18-year-old Tafahree Maynard remains at large. Police conducted a search of the area where Maynard was last seen Saturday evening, but have had no luck. Police will charge Toney with aggravated assault and felony murder once he is apprehended.
A coven of self-proclaimed witches in Brooklyn, New York, gathered on October 20 to cast a group hex on U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh as part of an occult ritual to target “all rapists.”
For the record, Kavanaugh has never been accused of rape.
The cursing ceremony was led by male witch Dakota Bracciale, who said a group of 60 witches carved Kavanaugh’s name in a black candle, doused it in “Revenge Oil,” and set it on fire.
Bracciale admitted that he’s not sure how potent the hex will be, or whether it will even work.
“If his d–k shrivels up and falls off, great, but I don’t think that’s something realistic to hope for,” Dakota Bracciale told the New York Post.
A Dozen Christians Protested Outside
The event was organized by Catland Books, an occult bookstore in Brooklyn.
A video posted to Instagram Friday shows a Florida police officer striking a 14-year-old girl twice and has Florida residents upset at what appears to be excessive force. Coral Springs Police, however, are defending the actions of the officer, saying that the video doesn’t show the whole story. CNN reported that the police department provided context by sharing the series of events that occurred prior to what is seen in the video and stated their belief in the importance of transparency by the department so that people have all the facts about a situation before judging whether an officer’s actions are appropriate.
After Saudi Arabia released a statement on Friday claiming that Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed during a “fist fight,” only to see the story received with global disbelief and condemnation, as The Guardian reported — as well as calls for the Saudis to produce Khashoggi’s body, as the Inquisitr reported — Saudi officials on Saturday offered a new version of events to explain Khashoggi’s death and what became of his remains.
According to a Reuters report, the Saudis are now claiming that a group of Saudi agents showed up at the consulate to “confront” Khashoggi — who had recently become an outspoken critic of Saudi ruler Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman — and when he resisted he was placed in a chokehold, during which he accidentally died.
On its first anniversary, the Impeach Donald Trump campaign celebrated by announcing that it had more supporters than the National Rifle Association has paying members, according to Newsweek.
Need to Impeach, a campaign founded by Democratic billionaire Tom Steyer, held a small celebratory meeting at a town hall in Newark, New Jersey. The campaign, founded exactly a year ago, intends to pressure Congress into starting impeachment proceedings against Trump. Last week, the impeachment campaign amassed six million signatures, edging the 146-year-old National Rifle Association’s total number of paying members by at least half a million. NRA’s dues-paying membership stands at nearly 5.5 million people.
But Steyer cautioned against getting carried away because of the number of supporters the campaign has garnered, acknowledging that as opposed to the NRA, which depended on big money, Steyer’s movement was a more grassroots-funded campaign.
The hits just keep getting bigger in the America’s two lottery games with the Powerball jackpot soaring to $620 million after no winner emerged from its drawing Saturday night.
The numbers 16, 54, 57, 62, 69 with the Powerball number 23 proved unlucky for the millions who awaited the weekend drawing, leaving them to play again and wait for the next pull on Wednesday. The new cash payout for the jackpot increased to $354.3 million.
The new jackpot is the third largest the Powerball history, only behind the $758.7 million won in Massachusetts in August 2017 and the former all-time record of $1.586 billion won by tickets in California, Florida, and Tennessee in January 2016.
That January 2016 jackpot is now the former all-time record because the current total in Mega Millions, America’s other nationwide lottery game, stands at a breathtaking $1.6 billion. Mega Millions cash payout of $904 billion would be good enough to be the second largest lottery jackpot of all-time.
Mega Millions’ next drawing is Tuesday, giving that jackpot a chance to stretch even higher.
American oil executives say they are disturbed by a photo of the Saudi crown prince and the energy minister at a Saudi Aramco event in Houston in April, in which the two men stand with a third man who appears to be Maher al Mutrib, a Saudi royal bodyguard who is a key suspect in the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi. His presence in the photo illustrates the close links to the highest levels of the Saudi government of some of the suspects allegedly involved in the murder, according to The Wall Street Journal.
The oil executives, upon examination of the photos, were shaken to see Mutrib so closely connected to Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al Falih, who many oil executives work closely with as Falih is the chairman of Aramco, the world’s largest oil company.
As the search for missing teen Jayme Closs inches toward the one-week mark, investigators are reporting that they have received over 1,000 tips and have done a thorough follow-up on over 800 of them. ABC News reported on Wisconsin’s Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald’s Saturday statement on the case.
“We are using every resource available and have conducted hundreds of interviews, multiple searches, and are using the technical and forensic expertise of our state and federal resources to locate the person or persons who committed this offense and to locate Jayme.”
